: yes that is what they advertised, and the 3.0 motor is a more "radical" motor in its own right. But most 3.2's have been dynoed at 248-249 hp, give or take cause of temperature changes. I wonder what stock 95's (besides the LTW) have been getting? Not to be picky, I am just curious...

more radical? huh? both teh 3.0 and the 3.2 are cored and stroked versions of the M52 (2.5/2.8L) engine...240hp is on the VERY conservative side of specs, all M3s should be at least 240hp....FYI- the lightweight engines are at the upper 5% of tolerances and should dyno at at least 255hp
